Pattern idea for mom
Hello All,

You ladies (and gents!) always have the best ideas, so I am sure you can help me here :D

My mom is having knee replacement surgery in mid-August. So, I wanted to knit her up something to give as a gift while she is healing away.

I was thinking of a scarf, but wanted a nice pretty one, but not all frilly, but something light. A more decorative type of scarf, rather than one that keeps you warm. I know there are tons of free patterns out there for these, but was hoping you guys could share a favorite of yours. Or any other ideas on what to knit up for her?

Thanks a bunch!

How about Branching Out from Knitty? It's light and pretty and probably fun to do. I'm not in the market for a scarf right now, but I've kept it in mind for future reference.

I was JUST asking for scarf suggestions...check out this thread!

I would also suggest a "learn to knit" kit if your mom doesnt know how already...its the perfect activity for convalescence!

Speaking as someone with much hospital experience (bunch of hip replacements and other hip/leg related things) I can tell you that she is going to be THRILLED that you have done this for her :D

And KK is right about the 'Learn to Knit' kit. My disability is what started my knitting last year and I've not stopped and it all started from a simple 'learn to knit' kit. If u r giving this a thought just pm or email me & I will tell you what my husband got for me...it was just right .
I am planning on doing this scarf myself...it's beautiful http://www.canknit.com/free/kos.html.
As is this feather & fan scarf http://www.suanknits.com/lacescarf.html
Hope u find one!

oh no, no knitting for her she needs to finish MY baby blanket (I am 32 weeks pregnant). Yes, that is "MY", not her grandchild's, but her daughter's baby blanket! :D So, I am over 32 years old, my mom's a little slow.... heehee. That is a good idea though, maybe give her a knitting project (she used to knit or crochet or both a long time ago). She plans on making a baby quilt for the baby, so I will have to check out the progress on that :D


Love all the ideas, I really like this one: http://www.canknit.com/free/kos.html - very simple, but so pretty, this would be perfect for my mom!!

*runs off to store*

oh darn, too bad I am at work!!!!!!! ugh!! I am so excited to get started! Thanks for the all the suggestions!
